The 6-foot-1, 220-pound first baseman is a two-time TN/KY Border Battle participant.  Tall, sturdy frame with proportional strength. Relaxed setup at the plate, looking clobber balls to the pull side.  Gap to gap power and solid bat speed.  Average defender at 1B with solid arm and footwork. Not the slightest of foot, but room to improve with maturation and lean muscle gain.  Classic first base slugger, looking to do damage and provide adequate defense.
